Exposure Science for Healthier Environments and Workplaces

comprehensive monitoring for all

Visualizing the Invisible
Only by knowing there's a problem, can we begin to solve it.

Despite significant improvements in air quality in the last decades in most developed countries, air pollution remains a serious problem. According to the World Health Organization, about 6 million deaths annually are caused by outdoor air pollution alone. In Europe, that amounts to half a million deaths annually. As individuals, this is often imperceptible as air quality hides itself well as an invisible burden on your health.

We can address the growing need of people to know how environmental pollutants affect them, their families, and friends by characterizing pollution at high resolution indoors and outdoors in real-time. Based on measurements and modeling: people will be able to make informed decisions on where and how to live their lives; city governments will be better able to prioritize environmental concerns; businesses will be able to make their workplaces safer, healthier, and more attractive for their employees; and citizens will have the information to be able to discuss with neighbors, businesses, industry, utilities, and government offices to address persistent environmental concerns.

CAPABILITIES

VISION

A world where decision-making for healthful environments for all populations is not prevented by data scarcity.

CONSULTING

Offer consulting services in the domains of exposure science, indoor and outdoor air quality, environmental monitoring and modeling, occupational safety and health.

MONITORING

Our lab measures air pollutants via integrated and real-time device monitoring instruments. Our team has over 15 years of fieldwork experience in Switzerland, Europe, USA, as well as in Africa and Asia in support of health studies.

EXPOSURE/HEALTH ASSESSMENT

Measurements and monitoring are the basis of exposure science. Modeling connects the monitoring results with people’s exposure to pollution. Health effects are then evaluated based on level of exposure.
